It rhymes with “Detroit”

When you visit Beloit, you’ll quickly discover there’s a little bit of everything nearby, flavored by Wisconsin and the Midwest.

You can get here from there

Beloit benefits from a central location just north of the Wisconsin/Illinois border.

Madison, the state capital, is only a 45-minute drive. And we’re only about an hour and a half from Chicago and Milwaukee, making it easy to get here by car, bus, train, or plane.

The City of Beloit is booming

Whether you’re here to tour campus — and maybe browse one of our museums — or in town for the Beloit International Film Festival, you’ll find that our corner of Wisconsin has more to offer than cheese curds (of course we have those, too; they’re delicious).

Located at the intersection of the Rock River and Turtle Creek, Beloit’s hometown is an industrial city reborn. The downtown core near campus once housed a machine-parts foundry. Now it’s home to our center for entrepreneurship and the Powerhouse, a world-class student center/athletic facility we built in a decommissioned power plant. You’ll also find galleries, shops, riverside bike trails, tech start-ups, and an urban farmers market nearby.

Our close connection with the City of Beloit means students have access to more than its restaurants, theaters, and bookstores. They also benefit from community-based learning, including internships, job shadowing, and volunteer opportunities in town.

Seeing our campus from afar

Though we are scheduling individual campus visits, we know most students will need to get to know us at a distance.

Let Beloiters show you our campus through a series of videos on our Video Tour page. Or take advantage of our virtual visit options, including info sessions, one-on-one virtual counselor meetings, and individualized, real-time video walking tours.
